As for stellar instrumentals, here are a few that immediately come to mind:

the 'Beautiful Jam' just after the first live Wharf Rat is exquisite,

the jam before Wharf Rat is one for the ages and the Bird Song is also worth checking out,

and thinking of Bird Songs, I've always found this one from RFK to hit the spot,

Dick's Picks #12 yields two of my favorite instrumentals - the intro jam to China Cat and the long, but never tiresome jam out of Weather Report Suite goes many places and some are quite beautiful.

and a little darker but quite beguiling is this SlipKnot from the first post-hiatus gig in Portland, Or.

and last, but not least, is the jam coming out of The Wheel and up to the Playin' reprise from 6-29-76 . . . very tight and still sweet - love the spacey, chilled out section near the end
